The Right People on the Bus - May 2019

The Right People on the Bus is a monthly round up of job, consulting, and fellowship opportunities that people connected to Optimistic Anthropology are recruiting to fill.  We do this because we love connecting people to resources and opportunities to shape a more positive world. If you end up applying for any of these opportunities, we'd love to know. And if you email to let us know, we might even be able to give someone a head's up to look for your application!

We add opportunities to this page on a rolling basis throughout the month! So, be sure to check back to see what’s new.
